Today, I create something using the well loved marriage of banana, vanilla and milk. A creamy luscious thickshake, with a consistency comparable to soft serve. Simple, uncontrived and non-showy. Combine the following to a blender... 2 frozen ripe bananas, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 2-3 dates, a pinch of sea salt and 1 cup milk of your choice (I used Puhoi Valley half and half, some may believe this to be a little decadent). Blend until smooth. Serves 1.
